You’ve heard it before…strength training boosts your metabolism, burns a bunch of calories, and helps reduce your risk of injury. But if you needed one more reason to grab a pair of dumbbells, listen to this… A new study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology found that strength training can add years to your life, and is just as important…if not MORE important…than cardio.
